    Non-OEM batteries cannot be considered safe.

    An 85% discount on a battery, count me in (you think Apple is making a profit). The ebay sellers selling these batteries at $32 are making a profit. I just order 6 macbook replacement batteries from a third party ebay seller and they should arrive soon. I've used third party batteries before and they worked fine.

    Based on the number of problems people have reported with 3rd party batteries, I wouldn't trust or recommend any battery not made by Apple.

    I could still save money by going OWC which does have a better reputation then Ebay batteries.
